The Hawaiian bobtail squid, Euprymna scolopes, is well known for its light organ association with the bioluminescent bacterium Vibrio fischeri. Female squid also house a bacterial consortium as part of their reproductive system that helps protect developing eggs from pathogens. I'll cover our current research into understanding the function of this defensive symbiosis and how the association is established during development.
